Hello!  And thank you for visiting my blog.

My name is Ailsa and I am professional British woman who has always been creative, but has never had the time to indulge my artistic side completely.

Unfortunately I was made redundant in January 2015 from a job I loved and so this blog started as a way of recording how I unravelled from the stressful life I have had and coaxed my creative side out of the shadows and into the light.

I paint (abstract watercolours mainly), photograph (with a Canon EOS-M, or my Samsung mobile if necessary) and I also paint digitally on my Samsung tablet, using a variety of Android apps.


In September 2015 I started an MA Fine Art course at the University of Portsmouth so recent posts are dedicated to the work I was doing there.

You can see more of my work on my main site at  Peppermintsea.com .

I have another blog about internet dating as three years ago I met my husband that way – have a peek if you need some tips!

The best place to start is at the beginning…..

Thanks again – and please comment on the art – I love to have feedback 🙂


I'd love to hear what you think!
